College Students Confess What Love After Heartbreak Feels Like

"This is a silly question. It feels like love."


If you've had your heart broken you know it's one of the worst feelings in the world. It's such an overwhelming feeling that sometimes it's even hard to breathe. You miss that person so much you can't picture a life without them let alone a love with someone new. You cry, you grieve and then you learn to pick yourself up. Slowly, you take steps forward. You move on, you feel happy again.

I asked 5 college students what finding love after heartbreak feels like and here are their answers:

"It's scary at first. I went in to this relationship very cautious. I had to learn to let all my insecurities and ideas about love from my previous relationship go. Once I did that I was able to relax and appreciate what I have now."
"Love after heartache is a breath of fresh air. Waking up in the morning to the sun shining."

And lastly, the response that really hit me:

"This is a silly question. It feels like love. Sometimes it's real love that makes you feel like a teen again. Sometimes people think lust is love. It feels like whatever you allow yourself to feel."

Love after heartbreak feels like love.

It's a different person so it's a different experience, but it feels like love. There is a sense of hope in these words. There's hope in knowing that your next love will be just as wonderful and exciting and amazing as your last, just in different ways.

Know that the love you had before can't ever be replicated, but be confident that a beautiful new love lies ahead of you.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
